As the general elections are nearing residents across Ukambani have been urged to scrutinize leaders well before electing them.

Speaking today Matungulu parliamentary hopeful Philip Munyao said that party politics have taken the country backward.

According to him party politics benefit the party leaders and not the electorates and called for residents to vote for wise and dependable leaders who will deliver.

He said that there are leaders who were elected based on the popularity of their parties but have not delivered to the people who elected them.

"One thing that has taken Ukambani backward is party politics. They don't benefit the electorate but the party leaders. As we head on to the general elections please look out for leaders with good manifestos and also intentions," he said.

"Those leaders who will give you bursary without favor and serve you equally whether he or she is in a part or independent. Let's vote while thinking about our future and that of our children," he added.

He spoke while giving out bursaries to 85 needy students from the five wards in the sub county.

43 parents were able to secure birth certificates for their children through his help.

He questioned how the bursary issuance has been handled lamenting that there are needy kids who miss out on the issuance yet they are deserving.

"There is a lot of dishonesty when it comes to bursary issuance from the Constituency Development Fund. leaders should be aware of the needy kids without fees and give them a priority. Let leaders prioritize education and support it wholeheartedly. It's terrible to hear that people are getting more money than others for bursary," he said.
